Pacific Crest began in 1993 with 33 students. Today Pacific Crest is one of North America’s most respected performing arts programs, and reaches 3,900 students each year. At the heart of their program is their Drum and Bugle Corps, one of the nation’s foremost ensembles of its kind.
Pacific Crest is made up of 150 performers (selected by audition), and their summer season includes a two-month tour of 25 performances throughout the United States. Their program attracts students who want to perform at the highest levels of the marching arts. Pacific Crest has also appeared in cinema broadcasts, on television shows and commercials, and in world-class venues, including the Orange County Performing Arts Center, Rose Bowl, and Hollywood Bowl.
